Miserable day

Good afternon everybody.  It is a miserable grey day here with more rain still to come.  First of all let me say Welcome and thank you to Linda for adding her name as a Follower.  I spent some time this morning doing this card for a friend's birthday.  She is a more mature person and not really into "frilly" so I thought that keeping it simple and plain would be appropriate.  I copied part of an idea from one of Sue Wilson's cards.  I'm afraid the photography is not really up to speed but hopefully a new camera will arrive courtesy of Santa.  Thank you for taking the time to drop in.

A card for my brother

First of all let me say a huge Thank You to Mina, CraftyLoops, Sue, Wendy, Isswizz, Jules and Irene for being so kind as to add your name to my Followers and for your  lovely comments.  Looking at everybodys blogs I do realise just how much I have to learn.  This card I made for my brother who has completely rebuilt an old Austin and has made it into a little roadster not unlike these.  It also gave me the opportunity to try out my one and only mask.  The images are from the Nostalgia cd. and the backing paper is from Debbie Moore's Shabby Chic cd.  I have to add that the photographer has been complaining that he does not get a mention - so Gerry consider yourself mentioned - despite the fact that Lord Litchfield would have been less fussy.

Thank you

Hi - I do hope you will forgive me for being so haphazzard but I am just getting used to posting etc.  I wanted to say a very big Thank you to both Elizabeth and Irene for adding your names as followers.  Since I am new to blogging this means a lot to me and is very much appreciated.  Marie-Louise

A first attempt

This is my first attempt at doing a side stepper card.  I also wanted to try out some new Spellbinders tags that I had bought.  The little roses are Joanna Sheen stamps.

Hi and Welcome To My World.  I have been making cards for 2 years but never would have thought of showing my efforts without the encouragement of my friend Silverscrapper (Elizabeth).  I would be glad to receive any tips which would help me improve.  Thank you for taking the time to look and I do hope that you will come back.
